ISO - best coconut shrimp SFV - LA
Did a search - nuthin'.
Looking for the best coconut shrimp out there.
I'm talking about those fried, crispy, coconut-crusted delights with tender, perfectly cooked (not over-cooked) shrimp within.
Handy to Studio City/Universal City a plus.
happy hour availability -- even better!
OK, this is not going to help you locationally, but (with apologies to WestsideGal), I really love the greasy coconut-spackled shrimp in Playa del Rey (on Pershing, not far from LAX) at Berri's Playa Cafe. The appetizer portion is really fine for a dinner ... as an appetizer you would HAVE to have two people chowing down on it. It's served with a tart, deep tamarind dipping sauce that goes really well with it. It's not very bready, just sort of a greasy coconut amalgamation meltdown on decent-sized shrimp.

If you go there and someone else needs something else to eat, the mushroom goat cheese (I think that's it) pizza is, I think, quite nice. And I've had the salmon dinner before and it's been fine.
